    I did an ad on Craigslist earlier this year. I dind't quote any prices, just services. Got two nice clean-ups @ $70/hr. Only one call who wanted a clean-up for little or nothing. I passed and laughed at her as I was leaving her driveway!!

    i saw one for $10 per cut. one reason is the wife cant find a job after taking off to have a 2nd kid and we don't have the xtra $ do any ads anywhere else.

    With advertising, as a rule you get what you pay for.

    You're as well if not better off just lower your prices.

    I got some great customers from craigslist this year. I did a few quotes where I heard "the neighbor boy does it for $10 bucks" but overall I added a couple of my best clients from craigslist.
